IoT helps with transparency

Increased transparency

Well-kept food traceability records and sensor data can increase transparency between businesses, producers and consumers.

This allows plant managers to respond faster in emergencies and use evidence based data to improve processes and provide assurance to the public that robust mitigation measures are being applied following recalls.

Blockchain can be applied to IoT data to trace and verify the origins of a product from the field the crops were grown in through to the distillery the whisky was made in giving confidence to the end customer that the product is the genuine article.

If you would like to know more about CENSIS activity in this sector, let’s talk.

Food and drink

Increased transparency is one of the health and social care subjects explored in our CENSIS FutureTech programme.

This is an area where Internet of Things (IoT) technologies could deliver huge benefits and enhance people’s lives.


Sector knowledge

Within the FutureTech programme, CENSIS met with people from different sectors to hear their ideas about the transformative potential of IoT.
